When most individuals think of chiropractic treatment, they think of back pain relief.

Why Headaches occur and how to Treat Them

More often than not, headaches or due to an irregularity in the spine. More importantly, migraines occur when the vertebrae in the spine are not aligned. This is also known as a subluxation, which in turn, can cause a compression or irritation of nerves that travel from the spine to the brain. The result is from a subluxation is a chemical imbalance within the brain, ultimately leading to an individual suffering from a migraine.

 

How do chiropractors treat such pain with chiropractic care? They begin by careful, minor adjustments to the spine. Ultimately, their goal is to realize the spine to it’s normal position. By accomplishing this goal, chiropractic relieves pressure on the inflamed nerves cause by subluxation. This in turn allows the nerves to heal.

 

Migraines are not the only form of headaches caused by a misalignment of the spine. Cervicogenic headaches may also be caused by a disorder in the neck. A disorder in the neck may be caused by an injury to the neck. In addition, muscle tension and spasms in the neck are known to cause tension headaches. With chiropractic care, chiropractors are able to gently and effectively realign the neck area of the spine.

Conclusively, chiropractic care can effectively address the root cause of pain associated with headaches. Rather than addressing the symptoms, chiropractic works to correct what may be causing migraines, or other forms of headaches, in the first place. It should be noted that chiropractic may not treat every headache. However, a study published in the Journal of Headache and Pain demonstrated chiropractic’s safe and effective treatment. It was noted that of the 218 participants suffering from migraines, 36% saw a reduction in frequency, intensity, and duration.

Discover why Movement shouldn’t be feared following an Auto Accident

Learn more about why a lack of movement after a car crash could negatively effect your overall recovery time and your body’s range of motion

Following an auto accident, a patients’ worst fear usually involves hindering their recovery time through movement. As a patient moves, they feel their muscles contract, followed by a wave of pain and a soreness that ultimately discourages them from pushing the limits of their range of motion. One concern that rushes through your mind may be, “I am doing more harm than good by pushing my range of motion to its limits.” On the contrary, failure to consistently push your body’s range of motion to it’s limits following an auto accident may hinder your recovery even further.

In a study published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers measured 42 patients’ level of fear by utilizing two different scales. Each patients’ injuries differ in severity, but they have all suffered from pain for under a month, and all were harmed in a car crash. Researchers analyzed the patients’ range of motion in their necks. Additionally, they noted the severity of each individual’s neck injury. Each patient was evaluated after one, three, and six months after their auto accident.

 

Effects Immobility has on the Body

“…movement after an auto accident does more than just reduce anxiety…”

The study concludes that patients who were more reluctant to move their neck had decreased neck immobility. This was in addition to a reduced range of motion. In addition, fear only served as to prolong these patients’ symptoms. Conversely, patients with less fear of movement recovered before their 6 month follow up.

This study concludes that movement after an auto accident does more than just reduce anxiety. It ensures that muscle tissue does not recover to be more damaged, tense, or restricted. Chiropractic can play an essential role in recovery, because chiropractic works to reestablish everyday movement and function in your neck and back. In the event that you’ve been in an auto accident, do not hesitate to seek treatment. It is imperative to get your neck and spine moving again as soon as possible. Chiropractic can accelerate your recovery.
